    Installed a Moroso oil catch can on the Camaro the other day! 20191217_155729[33568].jpg 20191217_173247[33566].jpg

    Also got my fuel pressure regulator and Transbrake switch to install, probably this weekend.
    Been busy with other stuff lately, it's hard to find spare time to work on the Camaro.

    After pricing out the parts for my TH400 rebuild, I decided to just buy a rebuild TH400 from one of the many reputable companies that specialized on this Transmission (on the fence between ATI, Rossler or FTI). It's amazing how quickly the price adds up when buying individual parts for a "High Performance" TH400 build. Remember the old saying though -Always Budget for SAFETY...

    Just went through this build/update thread.

    First off, very nice build & work Jodi, love the BIG Block chevy for what your doing. My guess, if you can get that power to the ground, and the hit comes on early and hard, I say 9.05 et at 149.5 MPH if your weight is 3,500# at the line. My last 2 BBC I tuned on were in the 900HP range, N/A single carb, cast intake!!! holy crap, I'm a SBC guy, but you can not argue with a high HP BBC...

    And setting lash with those T&D shafts are so nice!! makes me want a set of those lol...

    Thanks! I guess I'm gonna have to put a chute on her lol...
    I plan on setting the Nitrous (1st stage) to come on progressively as soon as the brake is released and then hit the 2nd stage midway. Just like you said though, traction will probably be a challenge.

    900HP NA BBC very impressive (kudos to the engine builder), are they high comp. engine?

    It's so hard to set up a reliable high horsepower naturally aspirated old school street engine that's why I opted for a shaft mounted rockers and bushed lifters. Hopefully it would fair better to the stop and go driving.

    Can't wait for that test and tune day!
